Dovetailing with the 10th anniversary of the African Film Festival of Cordoba-FCAT, an initiative for the education, and hence professional training of its participants, will take place from Monday 14th October to Friday 18th October in Cordoba. This initiative, consisting on a Film Criticism workshop, has been sponsored by AECID’s programme ‘ACERCA’ (Cultural Sector Capacity Building Program) and Instituto Andaluz de la Juventud (Youth Andalusian Institute). Federico Olivieri, tutor of the course ‘Introduction to African Cinemas’ since 2009 at FCAT, has gathered together leading professionals in the field of Film Criticism who will be guiding a group of twenty-five young cultural journalist in the art and business of film reviewing.

Under the academic direction of Alfonso Crespo, film theorist and critic in regular and specialised press (Diario de Sevilla, News from Home, Lumière, So- Film España), this course-workshop aims at offering an introduction to the theory and practice of film criticism in this multipolar world. By focusing on images, sound, models and spaces, it delves into tips and practises allowing a critical viewing of these films. The rest of invited experts are the film experts Francisco Algarín Navarro, Francisco Javier Benavente Burian, Beatriz Leal Riesco (a Spanish regular researcher and writer on Africa, now curator of the New York African Film Festival) and the highly acclaimed Olivier Barlet, director of the Africultures.

The workshop, absolutely free of charge, is aimed at young students and professionals of communication. Places are limited to 25 and applications close on the 27th of September.
